6lbs over is ******* absurd. That's Mackenzie Dern numbers Maaaan. I just don't get it. These guys gotta know by now, you miss weight, you're losing out on ATLEAST 20% of your purse. Sometimes 30% if it's by alotta weight or if you're a chronic failed weight cutter and missed weight multiple times.

i usually take the fighter that missed weight, not always a good choice but my reasoning is, all other things being equal, that if a fighter realizes hes not going to make weight and just quits cutting and starts re-hydrating then hes going to be in better shape than his opponent. as far as big mack dern goes, shes just a fraud when it comes to mma, might not ever even see her again.

@phillip I would tend to agree but cutting weight typically doesn't take away cardio. Either you can go hard for 15 minutes at any weight, or you can't. And if you can't, your not training right to begin with. IMO 

Now of course water loading & depletion effects the brain and muscles, which effect cardio. 100%. There's Circulation, blood-pressure, dried up organs etc.

IMO its all about oxygen. Specially oxygen-intake. Can you breathe after 10 minutes of fighting? If so, how hard are you breathing? Without the finishes & bad-judging, the fighter with better cardio would win every single time. 

Same with marathons. If you take out all the independent variables you're left with a competition of who can do something the longest. Which stems from cardio. 

and specific cardio training translates brilliantly in MMA. Khabib can wrestle for 30 minutes straight because he trains by wrestling for 30 minutes straight. Boxers can win 12 round fights because they train for 12 rounds. So my point is if you're training for 15 minutes of MMA.. besides getting rendered unconscious or a terrible scorecard, nothing should be able to stop you. Including the health of your brains & organs.

I'm most interested in the Allen vs Jeffery fight tonight. Followed up by Mayes vs Prasel. The rest I'm more interested in seeing a fighter then the combo of fighters fighting.
